So, off I went to Walmart. Inexpensive binder and page protectors R Us! Even still, my vacation money began to disappear on school supplies. Oh well, I will just love these binders for the rest of my life ( or until I get some other idea of organization!) So, I stocked up. My "green" friend Andrea would be so disappointed in the copious amounts of plastic that adorned my kitchen table. However, I trudged on toward complete binder organization.
After a few days of sitting and stuffing sheet after sheet of paper into plastic protectors, I began to see progress. In fact, I loved the slick feel as I flipped the pages of my beautiful binders. Only teachers can understand the love of school supplies like this. Soon, I had binders for each month and their themes, Language Arts, Literature, Math, Writing, Assessment, Morning Work, and Miscellaneous. What a beautiful thing...
Do you see the lights from "Teacher Heaven" shining down?
I would like to point our one thing...there is no Miscellaneous binder. That is because it is nowhere to be found. Remember last week when I said I often throw things away and my husband has to dumpster dive to find them? Well I wish that was the case. However, in all my grand organization, I misplaced my miscellaneous file, therefore, there is NO miscellaneous binder. Boo hoo! So, for that, I start from scratch. Yippee...another project.
I am just starting to post items on Teachers Pay Teachers. If you'd like to see the binder covers here is the link. Nicole Bickham's Binder Covers Here is a sample:
These binder spine labels work for 2" binders or 1 1/2". I hope you like them.
Happy, happy, wishes for binder happiness!
